Inexpensive making in the classroom ~ ISTE

Inexpensive making in the classroom ~ ISTE | Differentiation Strategies | Scoop.it

by Stephanie Grimes

 

"It seems like everywhere you go, someone is talking about the maker movement, making or people who are makers. You may also be hearing about making in the classroom and, as a teacher, wondering how you might bring making to your school....

 

"Maker education programs are cropping up in schools across the nation as the maker movement gains momentum. Making relies heavily on skills such as problem solving, innovative and creative thinking, and perseverance — and it promotes positive mindsets and attitudes. What could be better for our classrooms, schools and society than confident, determined, innovative youth? Making empowers youth and amazing things can happen when we get out of their way!"

Using well-designed digital games as 'Preferred Activity Time'

Using well-designed digital games as 'Preferred Activity Time' | Differentiation Strategies | Scoop.it

Research is verifying what many teachers know: Well-designed digital games in the classroom increase student engagement, learning and retention. They improve students’ on-task time and even their social and emotional well-being. The benefits are especially significant when high-quality games are integrated into a curriculum over multiple lessons. So how can we put this knowledge to use as our new school year begins?

Elizabeth Bowden's curator insight, September 12, 7:52 PM

In addition to using Lego for maths, I've taken my sons (extensive) Lego collection into History and Society & Culture to have the students (high school) demonstrate their understanding of concepts such as globalisation, communism, nationalism, capitalism. Worked really well and classes sooo happy. 

 

Having been broken up into groups and given a concept each, They created cities or environments demonstrating the concept then talked the rest of the class through. 

Ness Crouch's curator insight, September 13, 4:06 PM

Fantastic ideas for using lego in mathematics. Simple hands on tasks.

These costs can quickly add up, so finding simple low-cost solutions is quite helpful. Below is a quick way to create your own stylus with 3 household items in just a few seconds!

Making a Makerspace: Peek Inside My Plans

Making a Makerspace: Peek Inside My Plans | Differentiation Strategies | Scoop.it

On October 1st I started on my efforts toward creating a set of Makerspaces in our school district. I immediately jumped into visiting the d.school at Stanford, collecting every book I could on the topic, and fortunately had already applied to attend the FabLearn conference. A Makerspace has been my goal since the first day I started as STEM Coordinator last year, but I was only given the flexibility and permission to move forward recently.
